      Special comments

      Don't forget your Photo ID

      Everything sounds sexier in Italian. Take agriturismo, an alluring word that simply translates to agricultural tourism. Travelers from all over the globe flock to Tuscany to truly experience the region's rural farming lifestyle. Some help in the harvesting of grapes or olives and others, like you, are lucky enough to learn the tips and tricks to master Italian cooking.

      But first thing's first. To make an amazing meal, you have to start with amazing ingredients. And there's only one place in Livorno to nab the freshest food products. That's Il Mercato Centrale. This 19th-century Central Market may seem overwhelming at first, but you have a secret weapon. A professional Italian chef who knows the ins and outs of every shop and stall is right by your side. So you've got this in the bag.

      After the food-shopping spree, your pro chef leads the way to a real Tuscan farmhouse, because this hands-on class doesn't take place in a soulless commercial kitchen. So chop, chop. It's time to unpack and prep your ingredients under the chef's watchful eye and follow step-by-step instructions to whip up Italian masterpieces, from the appetizer course straight through to a very sweet ending.

      Presentation is everything. But so is the enjoyment of a good meal in good company. After you learn how to perfectly plate your creations, you'll eat them with the classmates you've worked with shoulder to shoulder. Now raise a glass of local wine (or water, or a soft drink, whatever you prefer) and toast yourselves on a job tastefully done. Alla tua salute!

      Striking (olive) oil

      Many locales have a gastronomic claim to fame. Philadelphia's cheesesteaks. Chicago's deep-dish pizza. Quebec's maple sugar. But one of the most fanatically protected is Tuscany's extra virgin olive oil (EVOO). Before going to market, each batch is subject to extensive chemical and taste testing. If you're looking for the real deal at home, check labels for one of these certifications: Chianti Classico DOP, Terre di Siena DOP, Lucca DOP, Seggiano DOP, or Toscano IGP.

      Full refunds issued for cancellations made 7 full days prior to the date and time of requested services. Cancellations made within the 7-day and 72-hour window will receive a 50% refund of purchase total. Purchases are non-refundable inside of 72 hours.
